  • Robert Funk

    Competitor with the CU Freeskiing Team and lifelong ski enthusiast. Born and raised on East Coast skiing, I eventually moved to Colorado to attend the Unversity of Colorado and to see what big mountain skiing was all about.

    While at the University I joined CU's Freeskiing team and have competed in various events across the Western U.S.. Nothing gives me more joy than skiing technical lines in the deep snow of the Rocky Mountains! Traveling and skiing some of the best big mountain terrain has given me a deep appreciation for what the right gear can do to improve anyones ability.

    My favorite mountain is Jackson Hole in Wyoming, but every day that I get to spend on snow is special no matter where I am.

    Would never have found this ski without Robert
    I've done lots of research and agonized over which ski I should buy. Robert recommended 3 or 4 different ones that he thought would be best suited to my ability and needs. To be honest, I did say I wasn't likely going to buy skis online, and I really just needed some assistance with my choices. He was so super helpful. I ended up purchasing one of his picks for me: Black Crow Vertis Birdie - which I had never come across in my research. After skiing on them for the last two days, I am so so so happy with them. Without Robert's expertise and advice, I would never have found the perfect ski for me. Thank you Robert!
